Lucence works with blood specimens kept either in purple-capped EDTA tubes or camo-colored STRECK tubes. Usage of appropriate tubes (refer to information below) for Lucence’s tests is important as the specimen integrity has to be maintained during delivery to the laboratory. Failure to do so may lead to deterioration of blood quality that affects the diagnosis and a repeat blood draw will be required.
Lucence Diagnostics provide blood collection kits to doctors in Singapore and the region at no extra charge. If the ordering physicians require phlebotomy services in Singapore, please go to the Request a Kit page to find out more about the supported locations.
